‘If I could change three things in my community, I’d want to change the mindset of the people. I’d also implement a place where people can focus on themselves. Lastly, I would want people to actively engage with one another to build stronger relationships. Fortunately, I’ve been more social recently and have been advocating for others to take initiative of their lives and build a stronger foundation for their people. I hope that with this asset I can change people’s mindset positively. I’ve also joined groups such as the NAACP, and the Youth Advisory Council to help me actively strive for these changes.’
